Loss of Lip Volume

Loss of lip volume occurs over time. As a result, thinner lips with poor edge definition and a down turning of the lip corners. Vertical lines above the lip (smoker’s lines) and creases in the lower lip may also occur.

Several factors are associated with this condition. These include decreased elasticity of the skin (see Lax skin), sun damage, the formation of wrinkles, and changes to the facial structure such as teeth alignment or a loss of muscle and bone.

As we age, the loss of lip volume and a down turned mouth can create a sad or stern look – while not intentional. Treatments are available at The Rosenthal Clinic to reduce these effects. In some cases, restoring the mouth and lip area can be done without increasing the lip size.
